ever since i had my baby girl in december 2009. I have been having back pain. I believe it is due to the fact that the lady that gave me n epidural messed up the first time n had to try again for a second time. its now in april and its getting to the point where i can no longer really move wivout being in pain. I have no idea where to go because i cant get an MRI due to the fact that I have had open heart surgery 2 times and I have wires in my chest. do u have n e thoughts or ideas as to wut my next step should b??

I would bet it has to do with the Epi. Every once and while I'll get a shooting pain in my lower spine where they put the epi in. I would ask your dr what it is and if there is anyway that something can be done about it, but I would definately put money on it being caused from the Epidural.

I know this post is a little old, but I have had the same problem with the area around where I had my epi as well. (and the dr did fine at putting mine in.) usually it is just fluid building up around the spine. The ONLY thing that will actually relieve the pain is for my DH to take some Bengay and rub the pad of his thumbs into my spine. It hurts like crazy while he does it, but it works. I'm usually pain free for a few days whenever he does that.

Thats been what has worked for me anyways. HTH
